Python project skeleton

Project Description


Are you:

  • Starting new projects by copying old ones?
  • Wishing you could use someone else’s project as a starter template?
  • Confused at how to start “Project FooBar”?

I’m always starting a new python projects by cutting and pasting an old one. py-skeleton helps you fix that. Uses jinja2 and py-configurator.

basic usage --source ../py-skeleton-templates/python/
               --ext .tmpl
               --destination ./build
               --config ./python.ini
  • –source is the directory path to your templates
  • –ext is the extension path for your templates
  • –destination is the directory path to where everything will end up
  • –config is the file path to where your configuration file lives


To find an example project templates, please take a look at py-skeleton-templates.


  • logging
  • add other project templates I use
  • remove py-configurator dependency
